Here is another of my results from life painting that has a few good things and a few wrong things. This model was dressed in a red sun dress and a lavender scarf. A Bolshevik Kirsten Dunst! (On the subject of Russian Impressionists...I just got my Sergei Bongart book from eBay..what an inspiring book). At the end of our session today I vowed to get new brushes.
Isn't it funny that lately I have been noticing that one of my eyelids is starting to droop ...and I painted the model's eye wonky? Her eyes are perfect....why didn't I paint them that way? This must be one of those times when the artist subliminally painted a bit of herself. I may have a go at correcting the eye later (on the painting..*I* don't think I am a candidate for surgery...YET..it is a condition called ptosis and my old Aunt had a bad case of it too...she never had it fixed).
